Priyanka studied biotechnology at the National Institute of Technology in Warangal, India, and obtained a masters degree in biological sciences and bioengineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, in 2013. For her masters thesis, she worked on C. elegans germline development in the lab of Kuppuswamy Subramaniam. In this work, she identified a novel positive regulator of RAS/MAPK signaling important for proper meiotic progression and oogenesis in C. elegans hermaphrodites. At BMLS, Priyanka works on post-translational mechanisms that regulate transcription factor degradation and on Calcium-dependent mechanisms of morphogenesis.
